This Winter, Practical Wisdom Workshop has lined up an exciting series of passionate presenters, who have all found inspiration and conviction from studying and practising the tenets of wisdom texts over many years.
This is your opportunity to engage with practical wisdom and discover how it could be applied in your daily life!
The third event of the series is presented by Philippa Street, who currently lectures Yoga teacher trainees in Philosophy, Sanskrit and Ayurveda as well as consults in Ayurvedic practice.
Held on Saturday 27th July, 10am at Melbourne School of Philosophy, Hawthorn, this engaging two-hour session will explore how we can find inner harmony and peace with oneself and society.
Practical steps towards mental health
This workshop draws inspiration from Patanjali's Yoga Sutras to find inner harmony and peace with oneself and society. It looks at mental health rather than mental sickness and asks the question - What is vibrant mental health and how do we attain, maintain or regain it? Patanjali, in his Yoga sutras, gives directions for our relationships both with ourselves and society. It is finding harmony in these relationships that we become happy and healthy, full of balance and vitality. This will be a practical discussion considering the application of the sutras in everyday life.
Philippa Street's interest in practical philosophy began over 40 years ago and this led her to study Sanskrit and later Ayurveda to a professional level. She finds that Patanjali is both highly practical and accessible and that the wisdom found in the Yoga Sutras is most relevant to a cohesive society.
Come and meet Philippa and discuss this subject matter with like-minded people. Sessions are limited to 20 attendees, so early bookings are advised.
